These are so inspiring! Fantastic painting!!
He has an instructional book coming out in October!
I love the style of your work, true artist :)
These are brilliant! I seldom dabble with watercolours, cannot get the hang of them just yet. Your paintings are gorgeous. Glad you features on Freshly Pressed, I may not have found you otherwise!
Lovely use of color and your drawing foundations are inviting to my eyes. Do you see your sketches?
Hi Meg – what was that about the sketches? How I see them?
That is why I should not be allowed to eat breakfast and type at the same time! Sell, is what I meant to ask. I did notice you have some pieces, replications, for sale on Etsy. Do you ever sell originals?
Ah! I see – well, as it happens most of these are either sold, or not for sale (in the case of ones done in a sketchbook) – so at the moment not really – but what I do is offer most of these as prints. I’ll point over to my Etsy shop -https://www.etsy.com/shop/CitizenSketcher – but In a few days I’ll be away for two weeks so it’ll be temporarily closed from the 6th to the 20th. If you see something you like on the blog you don’t see there, or would like a different size – just mail me direct – marc.taro(at)gmail.com
Beautiful work! I especially love the fish on the plate. Very light and airy architechture. Wish I could attend a workshop. What part of the world do you mostly teach in? Only in Canada?
Well, I’m teaching in Barcelona right now! What we’ve been doing is setting up weekend workshops anywhere a local group can get a minimum of 10-15 people together to fund bringing the instructor out. The more people who are interested the more instructors we can bring. Here’s a link to the Urban Sketchers workshop page: http://workshops.urbansketchers.org/p/about.html
I would like to learn more about putting together workshops in my area. I live near Sacramento California USA and have a newsletter that reaches 1,100 artists, mostly working in watercolor. I am pretty sure I could put together 10 to 15 artists for a workshop, I do it all the time for my own workshops. Please get back to me if you are interested in doing a workshop in the Sacramento area, or the colorful gold country towns nearby.
Truly astounding. Artistry of this caliber is an endangered species. Which of your paintings is your personal favorite?
Well, without being weird to the people I traded with :) I would say I like the top one a lot. It’s really a special part of the cemetery – this huge pair of pine trees. I hope to go back and do some larger work. I didn’t truly capture the scale of it – the way they spread out mirroring the wings of the angel – makes a remarkable image.
I move to a new area in 3 weeks. When I get there… you’ve inspired me to look into local colleges, sketching and water color classes. Absolutely love your work! The half finished ones are my favorite. Like the 4th one down. I’ll be back later so keep up the good work!!! Very inspiring!!!
Love your work. I dabble a little in water colors and oils myself and would love to continue to see your work. :)
